LOS ANGELES, Calif., Aug. 23, 2012 — Los Angeles business litigation attorney Robert G. Klein has been admitted “pro hac vice” to serve as lead trial counsel in a United States District Court in the Northern District of Illinois. Mr. Klein is seeking to rescind a sale of assets including a trademark related to luxury goods and other intellectual property that his client made to a Chicago-based company. Mr. Klein has also filed a counterclaim for breach of contract and fraud in the inducement.
Pro hac vice (pronounced pro hock vee-chay) is a legal term that refers to a lawyer being allowed to practice a case in a jurisdiction that he or she is not otherwise licensed to practice in. The parties will likely be proceeding to settlement discussions where, if successful, Mr. Klein’s client will get back the assets that were originally sold.
“We believe that we have uncovered substantial evidence that supports my client’s claim and should lead to the original sale being rescinded,” said Robert G. Klein. “After attending a status conference in Chicago, I believe that we will be able to help return this intellectual property to my client.”
Los Angeles business litigation attorney Robert G. Klein has been handling complex business litigation cases since 1987. He has handled cases in state and federal courts as well as the U.S. Supreme Court, and has personally brought more than 40 cases to trial, securing multiple verdicts and settlements of more than $1 million.
